Tag Duel Rules

Tag Duel Header.JPG

Both teams start with 6000 LP instead of the usual 4000 LP in a standard duel.

If you manage to get Heads in the coin flip and begin the duel first, you will be the first to take a turn. The order should go as follows:

You → Enemy → Your Partner → Enemy Partner

If the coin flip results in a Tails and you begin second, the flow of the battle will go as follows:

Enemy → You → Enemy Partner → Your Partner

After the last Duelist in the cycle completes their turn, it goes back to the first person who started the Duel.

You can

When it is your partner's turn, you cannot see the cards in their hands; only your own hand is visible. Also, a Duelist's skill can only be activated on their respective turns.

Each time a different player of a tag team takes their turn, their respective Decks and Extra Decks are swapped out. The Graveyard, Banished Monsters Zone, and Field are all shared by the teams.
